Geraint Davies MP with Sketty Primary pupils

Geraint Davies visited the school as part of Parliament Week, which encourages people to fine out more about how Parliament and British democracy works.


Geraint Davies, Swansea West MP, said: “It’s brilliant to see young people so engaged and enthused to talk about issues that matter to them, their families and their futures. We’ve seen that on environmental issues it is the young people that are leading the way and this primary group were asking how we can use less oil to stop climate change and how we can have cleaner air by using electric cars and renewable energy from a Swansea Bay Lagoon.

“They were interested to hear how we make new rules and about how my own Clean Air Bill, which would reduce air pollution, and Plastics Bill that would reduce plastics, become law.


“Thanks so much to the teachers who have organised the visit and who are keen to make sure their students engage with democracy early. Young people want to have their say on things like the environment and the UK’s place is Europe and it is important they are able to participate in these type of discussions.


“The decisions we make today will affect these pupils, and young people like them, the longest, so their views and future prosperity should be at the centre of decisions. I hope to hear more from them in the future if I am re-elected as the Swansea West MP in December.”
